How to Make Día de los Muertos Paloma Punch
Sadly, All Hallows Eve or Halloween is celebrated for just one day. Thankfully, Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a three day celebration of life, death and the after-life for those that have passed before us.
I remember when I was too old for Halloween and instead of trick or treating it turned into a great evening for dressing up, getting together with friends and sharing some drinks. Now I love having a themed party to celebrate Day of the Dead where everyone dresses up; does it get any better? YES, yes it does, it also means you have to drink tequila, which is amazing!
However, it also means getting a large group of people around your house late into the night so I want to make it as simple as possible to entertain friends and family while enjoying the evening. The answer in all of these situations is PUNCH, nothing is better than a punch and that’s why I collaborated with Gran Centenario Tequila this year. I like to think of this as an elevated Paloma with delicious bright grapefruit notes and earthy agave syrup.
